Ebay, did spend a while looking for good products and feedback.
Grill was £60, the m2 grill actually has 6 double slats on it this one has 5, but carries it off easily.
Wing mirrors most happy with and had a couple comments on as well. The carbon runs true across them as well, they were £120, honestly they take 30 seconds to fit.
Rear spoiler was £120. It comes without tape to fit it, it was a bit more tricky to fit to get a flush match.

If you want close ups or links let me know.

I also bought the mperformance black decals for side skirt. They were a disaster, difficult to fit but they were too narrow (thickness) meaning there was white skirt above and below, looked nothing like the proper product. That was my only bad purchase.

The other parts been on a month now and still look good so quality seems ok, fingers crossed .

Unlucky on the delay I'm also awaiting a SO m240 :D

The m performance mock up looks sweet! I have a set of 405m wheels from my old m135, I was going to sell them but I think I'll keep them now!

Yeah def. I'm going to hold off on the Perf bits for now. First thing will be the rear diffuser. Where did you get the 405 Reps from? Were you able to transfer your rubber, or did you get a fresh set?

They are the wsp Italy reps I got them second hand. They are 19 inch so needed new tyres. I think the front and rear diffusers but not sure about leaving them matt black.

When is your car due? Hopefully looking at early December for mine :D

Wsp Italy reps? I'll do some research... How is the ride on 19"? My M3 was much more responsive on 18 than 19. Yeah If I get the rear diffuser it will like the part painted version (leaving it plastic-matte black in the middle).

Would be awesome in time for Christmas eh?! When did you place the order? One of the guys on here said there's a boat on Sunday, so hopefully it will be at the UK dealer within a week... Original ordered was aimed for 10th Oct, but realistically was due for 27th Oct, let's hope I'm in it by the end of Oct...

I only ordered mine at the weekend from TRL :D make sure you get some photos up when you get it. I probably wouldn't have had the balls to order SO until I saw one at my local dealer, it looked fantastic!

Yes wsp Italy 405m, by the time you have bought decent tyres I don't think they are much cheaper than the real deal but at least they wouldn't have runflats. I honestly hardly noticed a difference going from 18 to 19.

Nice :-) The deals from TRL look awesome. Yeah SO is brilliant in the flesh. I could have had an existing black one in Sept, but didn't fancy it...and wasn't the right spec.

I completely forgot about runflats until after it was built. Will see how my budget goes over the next while...

Hi guys,

Went to view this M235i yesterday and I have a couple of questions.

Image

Image

I'm assuming the boot spoiler and front splitter is aftermarket? Would this be an easy thing to revert back to standard?

Similarly the car is running Michelin PS4's on the front and Michelin Pilot Super Sports at the rear. Would this put you off at all?

Thanks all! :D
